This is going to sound odd, but I was never much of a blazer person because I never really know how to style them. To me they just look so...boring. Like, oh, you pop it over a dress or over a pair of jeans and call it a day. Calling it a day is not my thing.
But when I decided to wear this gingham dress this morning, I was sort of stumped with what to pair it with. It was too warm for a sweater, and I've already worn it with a cargo vest too many times to count. And then, from the corner of my eye, I saw a crushed velvet sleeve poke out from the back of my closet. I studied it carefully before even considering the thought that was trying to take shape in my head: what about a, dare I say it, blazer? Frowning, I decided it wouldn't hurt to try and nipped it out.
And I think it looks adorable together! I think it definitely helps that the blazer is a fun color and its velvet texture brings something interesting to the table, but this was just the thing for this tricky-to-style dress. And to finish it off, I paired the ensemble with white jelly shoes to make it feel more young, and there we have it! A perfect Tuesday outfit.
